A new RuPaul show is headed your way!

ETonline has exclusively learned that Logo has set the premiere date for Gay for Play Game Show Starring RuPaul, which tests contestants' entertainment IQs on the hottest pop culture moments, for Monday, April 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Filmed in front of a live studio audience, Gay for Play Game Show will have RuPaul put the contestants to the test, where they'll have to decide either to trust their instincts or turn to the celebrity panel for help.

The panel will feature Michelle Visage, Todrick Hall, Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews as regular panelists, along with a rotating panel of ex-RuPaul's Drag Race contestants, social influencers and celebs.

As the competition heats up, the contestants will then team up with a celeb panelist and have 69 seconds to answer as much trivia as they can.

But don't worry, there will be some famous faces squaring off. Rebecca Romijn will battle her husband Jerry O'Connell, Real Housewives vets Taylor Armstrong and Gretchen Rossi will vie for the crown and 227's Marla Gibbs will go up against Jackee Harry.

Amber Rose, Brandi Glanville, Cheyenne Jackson, Mean Girl's Daniel Franzese, Frankie Grande, comedian Heather McDonald, The Real's Jeannie Mai, Kristen Johnston and Mindy Cohn will also appear throughout the season.

"I've never laughed as hard as I did making Gay for Play. It's funnier than the Republican debates - with more useful take away," host and executive producer RuPaul said. "I wanted to capture the gay voices from my TV youth, like Paul Lynde and Charles Nelson Reilly, to create a new game show that everyone could enjoy. 'Let's Make America Gay Again!'"

The game show will follow episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race, which begins its new season on Monday, March 7 with a supersized 90-minute episode.
